What is a Cybersecurity Health Check?

The Cybersecurity Health Check Program provides opportunities for local government to access basic cybersecurity services at no cost. These services can be a good first step in discovering, assessing and identifying cybersecurity gaps that could impact IT systems that support essential business functions.

Who will perform the Health Check?

In response to a due diligence posting by the Executive Office of Technology Services and Security (EOTSS), several vendors offered to provide no-cost, high-level, Cybersecurity Health Check services for local government. After reviewing responses, EOTSS accepted best value offers and executed contracts with HubTech, Inno4, IntraSystems and Retrofit.

Who is eligible for a FREE Cybersecurity Health Check?

Any city, town or school district that can demonstrate a need for the selected cybersecurity service and has not had an assessment performed in the past two years that included similar services. Health Check requests are subject to resource availability.

A Cybersecurity Health Check may leave you better positioned to:

  • Rank criticality of identified cybersecurity gaps
  • Prioritize improvements in your IT environment
  • Build out a cybersecurity roadmap
  • Provide additional context related to budgetary requests

What a Cybersecurity Health Check is NOT

Cybersecurity Health Check services are not an alternative to a detailed cybersecurity assessment or regular and ongoing cyber hygiene, maintenance, and monitoring activities.

Product and service recommendations are not within scope for this engagement, therefore the recommendation of products, services, or solution sets should not be delivered by vendors as a part of the services.
